To our EU Customers...
Update 06/10/2021: EU Customers can now purchase our books through our eBay Store, which includes the relevant VAT and import payments at the point of purchase.
Since Brexit, shipping UK-based goods to the EU has been met with new and unwelcome import duties and VAT obligations, which vary from country to country. This means that, until a better solution is found, EU customers are liable for extra charges on receipt of goods purchased from this website. This VAT is usually around 5%, but can be as much as 22%, representing around a €7-10 charge on a £25 book. The receiving customer is obligated to pay this fee upon delivery, including any associated administrative costs accrued by the courier.
We are working hard behind the scenes to try to find a better solution. Until then, we ask our EU customers to be aware that they may face extra fees upon receiving books ordered from us, and that, for now, the customer is responsible for paying those fees or risk having the books returned. We apologise for this, and hope to find a more acceptable solution soon.
Example Tariffs, including duty payable on a £25 book:
Italy - 22% (£5.50)
Belgium - 21% (£5.25)
Spain - 21% (£5.25)
France - 20% (£5)
Germany - 19% (£4.75)
Please note that, depending on the country and the local courier, administrative fees may be charged as well.
